“It is an honor to have one of our past honorees, The Honorable Theresa Cox, Trade Advisor to the U. S. Department of Commerce, as our keynote speaker this year.

“San Francisco is a great place for initiating cultural exchanges. It is where the United Nations started! Also, Bridging the Generations Employment Training Opportunity launched at the event when I was honored to be the keynote speaker. The program is an example of out of the box thinking. Our national organization is now using the program as a model for other chapters," said M. Delois (Dee Dee) Strum, National President, National Coalition of 100 Black Women.
